I read today, with dismay, another front page story concerning Rep. Daryl Metcalfe's nonsensical Defense of the 2nd amendment bill. For a man who claims to be such an expert on the constitution, he demonstrates a staggering lack of knowledge of the fact that state nullification laws have been declared unconstitutional for more than 150 years. Even back in 1854 when the Wisconsin Supreme court tried to declare the evil Fugitive Slave Act unconstitutional the federal court overruled them thus enabling the settling of the matter by the Civil War itself.
